217 Views of the Tokaido Line

Description (in English): 

The great Japanese travel artists - Basho, Hiroshige, Soseki - are used as models for a digital journal about traveling the Tokaido train line (Kyoto-Tokyo) with my daughter. Working against the implicit linearity of the journey-the forward motion of the train-the six-minute video loop, with generative haiku, is designed to evoke the ephemeral jolts of contemporary travel and to uncover the moments lost in any narrative retelling.
